Movies are the best place to escape
your miserable life reality.
For two hours, if you’re lucky, you can ignore the kids, your partner, the washing or work.
Let’s not forget – you can pig out on popcorn and frozen Coke without feeling guilty.
You can also undo your pants and let your tummy hang out and no one will see because it’s PITCH BLACK!
There are a few movies I love to hate – including any that feature Jim Carrey, Mike Meyers and Leslie Nielsen (RIP).
Sorry but they’re just NOT funny – well to me any how.
Then again I’m fussy about comedy – it has to be subtle, dry, like a fantastic glass of wine.
However, I am partial to one Adam Sandler movie, Happy Gilmore was a source of amusement to me for a long time.
Not just because he threw golf clubs like I do when I miss a shot (like EVERY shot).
But mainly for this scene featuring Ben Stiller:
My favourite movies don’t fit any one genre, taste or Era!
But here’s five flicks that I have seen at LEAST 10 times – I KID YOU NOT – and would watch again if you rocked up to my house with it in your hot hand!
Romeo and Juliet (1996)
The Sound of Music (1965)
Shutter Island (2010)
Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001- 2003)
I have many more movies I LOVE – some are kinda creepy Kill Bill, some are soppy The Notebook and others are a mixture The Hangover.
But these are five I will never tire of watching – in fact I can almost recite the actor’s lines for them!!
Do any of these movies blow your hair back? What is a movie you have watched numerous times?
Did you notice something that three of these movies all have?
This Thursday I’m linking with Blogs and PR
